    I, too, am finding that as I grow up, the taste of licorice is gradually becoming less offensive. However, I just don’t think I can get past the black food coloring.

    I, too, was sad when Franka Potente was killed off and refused to watch the next two. Your post makes me want to eat macarons so bad! I have always disliked licorice but maybe macaron is the right vehicle for this flavour. Hope your surgery procedure goes well 🙂

    Hello! Oh man, I’ve been gone so long that you’re already back from your trip! I can’t believe all the different colours of those macarons. How much food colouring goes into those things? I’ve never had one in my life come to think of it but I do like the sound of the licorice one…always been a fan of licorice.

    Oh, and good luck for your surgery. I think you are perfectly allowed to moan about it.

    Sorry to hear that your toe is still giving you trouble 🙁 And can we dream of a day when supermarkets here start stocking macarons? Although would that mean that there is less magic about them? 😛

    Wow, frozen macarons – who’d have thought it and that they’d look pretty decent.

    I was going to try and make my own this or next weekend but if they were ever to just be found in box it’d sure save me a fair bit of mess and heartache.

    Sorry to hear about your foot. Get it done, pronto!

    Haha, the first part of your post makes me giggle lol

    Supermarkets stocking macs? That will be great if it happens here…

    Hopefully you are well now! 🙂

    wow, frozen macarons and foie gras, just as long as you dont get the too boxes mixed up, everything should be fine!!

    So many different flavours to try and they all actually sound quite good for a frozen product.

    Hope you’re toe gets better soon, sounds like it would be a bit sore

    Fiona: How can it be wrong when it tastes so right?

    Camille: It’s not food colouring, it’s the tears of an emo teenager. I almost got the pear and licorice treat at Ble Sucre when we went, but in the end I wasn’t sure enough that I don’t detest licorice 😉

    Laura: I, too, have never seen the last ones – we shall be Bourne-avoiders together. And thanks, though I don’t even know when the procedure will be yet!

    Vaala: I was just thinking the other day that I hadn’t heard from you lately, so hi! 🙂 And welcome as the seemingly sole licorice-lover. Also, lucky for you I’ve got a plethora of travel posts still to go!

    Lorraine: I’d trade in magic for a ready supply of legitimate pistachio buttercream!

    Kath: I’m hoping for pronto too! And good luck if you do try making macarons… the recipes I’ve read scare me 😛

    Anh: We should start a macaron petition! But then again, I can’t really see Woolies or Coles going that upscale… Hmm.

    Maria: Haha, yes, I don’t think I’d enjoy a meat-flavoured dessert. Thanks for the toe well-wishes… though the real soreness won’t start until post-surgery, I think!

    ha, that’s for the correct pronunciations! 🙂

    I have a feeling that a visit to Picard coming up in my future sometime. I too can’t help but think of the Starship Enterprise by the mere mention of Picard. Had never considered frozen macarons, but willing to give them a go. Such a thrillseeker. I don’t like liquorice either, horrible stuff.

  12. Hannah

    Simply Life: I’ve got your back! 😀

    Louise: Definitely go! I’ll be mighty envious if you have access to a kitchen and can make proper use of it – apparently, a lot of French people shop there in a fairly legitimate way. The thawed-from-frozen macarons are definitely the more budget-friendly way to go, and really weren’t too bad!

    What I am looking forward to most after undergrad is a kitchen. Macarons are a daunting task, but then again, what else to do with my joblessness? Jam and pistachio are especially enticing.

    Lauren: Kitchen was up there on my “looking forward to returning to” list, along with watching Ellen and working on my cross-stitch 🙂 A part of me wants to have a go at macarons, but in all honesty I’m just not enough in love with them. Making my own flavoured peanut butter, on the other hand…

    […] course, Pierre is also known for his amazing macarons, but we’ve seen enough of those by now, surely? After  my morning of research, I arrived at Pierre Hermé hoping to […]

    […] I wondered whether Baked and Delicious’ macaron recipe could approximate the experience of the 66 macarons I ate in Paris, then decided that the magazine’s step-by-step instructional photos of certain […]
